Cheap flights to Paris
There really is nowhere quite like Paris. New York may have the buzz and London may have the nightlife, but Paris has the romance, the architecture and the food. The ‘City of Light’ has long been the preferred city break destination for doe-eyed couples who come for the unrivalled architecture, the quality of its restaurants and romantic night cruises down the River Seine.
But there is more to Paris than just the language of love. This place is also the capital of fashion, haute cuisine and is one of the most culturally rich cities in the world. Paris is full of galleries dripping with artistic masterpieces and streets filled with some of the most iconic buildings in the world. Anyone fancy a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower, or a walk along the Champs Elysées with its endless array of designer stores?
If you find yourself stuck inside with bored kids on a rainy day, then make a beeline for the Cité des Enfants, an interactive science museum especially for little ones. This magical place encourages kids to learn through a whole range of hands-on activities, from playing with balance to producing the energy to power a television (30 Avenue Corentin-Cariou, 75019, cite-sciences.fr).
From 14-16 November, Anvers aux Abbesses will see a whole host of art galleries, ateliers and boutiques in the 9th and 18th arrondissements open their doors to the general public. The result? You get to take a sneaky peak at the work of contemporary artists, all while exploring this pretty neighbourhood. Win win! anversauxabbesses.fr
